Liked it, but it was although to short.
The could've added atleast a better ending, but it's more af a Source tech demo.

Its a really good "episode" to see what can do the Source tech, you can play it, its short but its good.

Lost Coast is a tech demo for Valve's new, "HDR Rendering". Which does make things look better, but the game is really short. Then again, it is a tech demo. Also, Headcrabs.

More scripted than some segements in the regular game. It doesn't do a bad job, but this is likely something you'll only play twice at best.
